Seahawks injuries are piling up with only three games left in the season. Sunday’s game versus the Los Angeles Rams could make or break Seattle’s season. Here is a mid-week look at who might play and who might not.

The Seahawks need all their quality players for Sunday. At least the ones who are left. In a year that has seen Seattle lose stars Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Cliff Avril to season-ending injuries, Seattle might have to deal with a few more this week. And these might be worse.

Bobby Wagner

Wagner has been dealing with a hamstring issue for several weeks. In the last game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Wagner had to leave the game for good in the third quarter. Seattle’s defense was not the same. On two successive Jaguars’s offensive plays after Wagner left, Jacksonville scored. The Jaguars was able to pick up a third-and-11 to effectively run out the clock, too. Had Wagner still been in the game, the outcome may have been different.

If Wagner cannot play against the Rams, Seattle will not win. According to Pete Carroll on Wednesday, “Bobby’s going to go all the way through the week as he has the last couple weeks, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

K.J. Wright

Wright is still going through concussion protocol While Carroll remains optimistic that Wright can play Sunday, whether Wright will play or not is up to team doctors.

No Wright and no Wagner possibly? The football gods hate Seattle this year.

Chris Carson

Carroll stated before the Jaguars game that Carson had some sort of set back in rehab. However, Carroll has also said the “setback” wasn’t as bad as it seemed. It’s still unlikely that Carson plays this week, but he is at least getting closer to returning.

Mike Davis

Davis practiced on Wednesday. Davis has been the only consistently productive back for the Seahawks besides Carson and J.D. McKissic. The running back needs to be able to go for Seattle to have any other threat besides Russell Wilson.
